    Desperation Setting In and Tonight's Entre'

    Howdy Folks. Snow flurries and 10 degree wind chill this morning means the ground could freeze up any day now. Being challenged by fellow Illini Treazure Hunter to get after it I did. Certainly not much but, I just ran down the street to my old abandoned school and did a quicky hunt until I could no longer feels my fingers. OUCH! I did score an "old" relic in the Montgomery Ward Hawthhorne Bicycle Head Badge. She's a mess but, good enough to ID. Must be as old as I am and that's a "keeper" by me. I got the clad dime on the surface under some leaves along with the School Works scissors which cleaned up nicely and cut like a dream.

    A few brass fittings, can slaw, and heavy aluminum stranded crap wire were about all I could handle before my fingers began "burning" from near frost bite. I need to invest in some hand warmers and insulated gloves if I plan on this insane quest for a few more goodies until total freeze up. Thanks for stopping by. Time for some spicy red beans. YUM!

    Link above shows the exact Head Badge I believe but, no date.
    “This Is My Creed I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever. William Cooper August 3, 1990”
